The healthcare sector has seen tremendous changes in recent years. Technological innovations and advancements in diagnostic medical imaging systems in developed economies should excel the market value. Rising demand for advanced medical imaging devices or systems to improve patient outcomes and operational efficiency will positively impact the medical imaging market progression. Prominent industry players operating in the industry aim to move towards patient-centric imaging and value-based radiology. Several improvements have been made in different imaging modalities such as mammography, ultrasound and MRI among others to reduce the associated side effects.

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT), or 3D mammography is the new standard in breast imaging with the potential to improve lesion visibility. It enables a radiologist to view each tissue layer independently instead of a combination of two images. Similarly, mobile technology has made its way into healthcare. Portable point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) systems delivering corrective information for clinical assessment aid healthcare facilities in times of triage and emergency. Additionally, the combination of computed tomography as well as positron emission tomography is proving to be very useful in clinical oncology.

Numerous companies offering innovative medical X-ray systems will fuel the medical imaging market demand
